on sunday, house minority leader nancy pelosi and majority leader eric cantor laid out the economic dividing lines. >> what we need is growth. we need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts, education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth, you're not going to reduce the deficit. so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. and that's 15% -- that's a large percentage of the budget. >> the tax fight for the president means higher taxes, more revenue. again, we can't be raising taxes every three months in this town, david. and you know, the bottom line is we want tax reform, but we want to go plug thosepresident talks bring down tax rates because we think that's pro-growth and we can let the economy grow and let people earn more money and keep more of it. the president's not talkin

side of things we have nancy pelosi saying there aren't spending problems. where is the middle ground? >> the middle ground is you have to deal with this the way that you and i would deal with it at home. you can't do something for two months or five months or six months. you have to look out over ten years. that's why simpson bowles, you pick one. the alternative minimum fix, if you accommodate them in a thoughtful plan. sadly what congress and the president has looked at rosily is this month it's taxes on rich people, next month it's sequestration. it's not a way to do business. >> steve latourette, thank you for your time. >>> still ahead, we continue to monitor the big news coming from italy. who tops the list of those who could be the next pope? >>> plus we'll have reaction from clergy here in the united states. >>> and this afternoon congress will once again take up the violence against women act. congresswoman gwen moore joins me to talk about what made this not so controversial legislation political incendiary. yes she is, yes she is.

there will be frustrations, but he said if you keep focused i expect nancy pelosi will be speaker again pretty soon. echoing what you just said the american people are largely with us on all of these issues, and we have got to go for it. >> the republican congress right now is less popular than head lice. it's true. there was a poll head lice colonoscopies, root canals -- still more popular than -- oh gosh what is that -- std -- >> stephanie: chlamydia? >> no. >> stephanie: not the one okay. >> anyway they are at risk and even they are saying and worried about it that if they really botch this -- all of these fiscal debates that they are going to be in trouble in 2014. well, they are doing a really good job at botching these by targeting absolutely the wrong people in our world, and everybody i think is catching on, and so we'll see, although eric canter -- i don't know if you saw. he gave a speech that sounded really similar to the president's inaugural address. hit all of the points. they are trying to remake themselves. so we'll see. >> stephanie: yeah, i hear the presiden

with the economy? you've had nancy pelosi over the weekend saying the fact that we have a spending and debt problem is a false argument. you've got him disbanding the jobs council. so i'm not optimistic, but it does appear that he's going to pivot to the economy now. at this point he's starting to look like a ballet dancer, and i hope he makes the right decision. jon: andrew, do you agree the economy is the number one issue? >> no doubt about that. i do disagree with the issues that he talked about, i definitely believe that the economy is number one for the public, and that's where the president is going to focus tomorrow night. jon: well, if the economy is the number one thing, chris, he did get reelected, essentially, you know, on, well, i mean, mitt romney hammered him on the economy, and president obama still got reelected. >> well, he did. i don't know that he did a great job point out the challenges to the economy. we saw the economy start to rebound. but half of americans still believe we are in recession. so this could kind of be the nixon goes to china time for obama. if he were to reach
